Hidenori Ishizaki - 10 Years of Flatland


Forkone kindly pointed out this new edit to us. It's Hidenori Ishizaki anniversary edit! He has been riding for 10 years and became quite the backwheel expert! Check those backwards manuals!

RIP Dave Mirra


Dave Mirra was a great athlete and an inspiration for many of us. He was also a husband and father of 2 kids. Hearing about his death is shocking and it's impossible to find the right words. Rest in peace.

The media release of the Greenville Police department:

"At approximately 4pm today, Greenville Police responded to the 200 block of Pinewood Road for an apparent suicide.
Upon arrival, officers discovered Dave Mirra, 41, of Greenville, sitting in a truck with an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. He had been visiting friends in the area a short time before the incident.
Considered an icon in the pro-BMX world, Mirra, was instrumental in bringing the sport to the City of Greenville, which now is home to more than 20 professional BMX riders. The record-holding athlete is survived by his wife and two children.
"We mourn the loss today of a great friend and wonderful human being who touched the lives of so many around the world with his gift. He called Greenville, North Carolina home and was as humble a guy talking with kids on a street corner about bikes as he was in his element on the world stage. A young life with so much to offer was taken too soon," said City of Greenville Mayor, Allen Thomas.
The Greenville Police Department will be handling the death investigation. The family of Dave Mirra would appreciate privacy during this very difficult time.

If you or a loved one are struggling with suicidal thoughts, you are encouraged to seek help through the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline by calling 1-800-273-TALK.


Chief Holtzman and Mayor Thomas will address the media tomorrow, Friday, February 5, at 9:00 AM at GPD Headquarters."

Malte Orth's Apartment Indoor Spot


Almost every day Malte Orth from Germany is posting a video on Facebook of him riding his indoor spot. The room looks tiny but Malte is used to it and can do some impressive combos in there. David Hoffmann visited him and brought his camera to film this spot from a few more angles than the usual videos on Facebook. Super cool footage, some music would have been great tho ;-)

If you have the opportunity then make sure to visit Malte's contest in 3 weeks: Fight the Winter

Bike Check: Sebastian Grubinger's Heresy Ascend


Check that clean bike! We asked Wastl for a bikecheck: "The AscenD 20" is the perfect frame for my size. Also I like my bike to be quite light, and it is! I really take care of that. The HERESY and PROFILE products I run are light but at the same time they are very stable and I can trust them. I cut my bars a bit because it feels more confortable for some tricks. I run the seat quite low, cause since a while I havn't done tricks where i need to hold it. I don't like the griptape on my pegs, but since I ride outside in winter, even on wet floor, the griptape helps not to slip off the pegs with wet shoes. Can't wait for spring to take it off again:-) I love my ride!"

Markus Reich - Lost and Found 2015


Nice edit of Markus from Germany. If you've ever seen him at a contest or jam then you know his smooth style. Steffen Peter who keeps getting better and better and making videos was behind the camera.
